Wind Me Up! at Details Fine Art Gallery
Wind Me Up! by Heather Millar is a painting collection of vintage tin toys that represent the nostalgia of childhood and the memories that our old toys conjure up. Elevating a commonplace object to a work of art by forcing the viewer to see it in a new perspective rather than just as an object or childhood memory is her
“I love the idea of having something tangible to represent that moment caught in time. So often our memories obscure what was our reality in that moment, so bringing back those memories in the form of a painting on canvas lets the viewer treasure what was possibly once lost.”
Wind Me Up! opening is at Details in Charlottetown on June 7 from 6 to 8 pm.
